Released from prison, Shadow finds his world turned upside down. His wife has been killed; a mysterious stranger offers him a job. But Mr. Wednesday, who knows more about Shadow than is possible, warns that a storm is coming—a battle for the very soul of America . . . and they are in its direct path.
One of the most talked-about books of the new millennium, American Gods is a kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth and across an American landscape at once eerily familiar and utterly alien. It is, quite simply, a contemporary masterpiece.
The Hill House edition of American Gods is one gorgeously put together book, bound in a purple cloth, with two color printing throughout. Our copies will come with the associated Reader’s Copy trade paperback, which features 12,000 words not in any other edition.
Limited: 750 signed numbered copies, in slipcase, with the associated Reader’s Edition (in as new condition, does not include orignila wrap as the copies in the sets do)
Set of five pieces as pictured below: American Gods, Author's Preferred Text with Reading copy, matching numbered Screenplay, Christmas Chapbook and Melinda All these extra items were made available or given to those who orignially purchased American Gods as a thank you for putting up with the numerous delays in delivery, this is a complete set, #101.
Set of four pieces as pictured below: American Gods, Author's Preferred Text with Reading copy, matching numbered Screenplay and Christmas Chapbook, this set does not contain Melinda. This set is #102
Individual Items available: We have a very limited number of Christmas Chapbooks and Screenplays by themselves.
Price: we find no other sets as listed above for sale at any price, the price we have set these at is based on individual prices available on the net for American Gods, the Screenplay and Melinda, the Christmas Chapbook we cannot find for sale, but figure it has to be more that what people are asking for the Screenplay, on top of that we have added a premium for the fact this is a matched numbered sets. We know it is high, but it is all we have to work with!

A haunting short story of a young girl living alone in a world of rot and decay, her only companions the feral animals that rove the deserted ruins. Illustrated by Dagmara Matuszak in color and black & white. Color illustrations individually printed and laid in by hand. Note the silver on the cover does appear to be thin, not sure if this is the way it was meant to be or rubbing has occured in the envelope, where it has been stored. What I am describing is clearly visible in the picture.
Stand Alone #542 - same description as above, with envelope, book as new, envelope has been around!
